spoken-word weird headphones corporate-necromancy
Here's a story about the dangers of messing about with dead folks.
I wanted to add a lot more detail, but did my best to keep it under five minutes for you.
Mixed for headphones, as usual!
What an absurd and somewhat terrifying story! You definitely have a knack for storytelling! The background sounds remind me of an old game called Earthbound which uses some similar sounds. You might even like the soundtrack. It gets pretty experimental and weird at times.
I've been a Hank fan since I discovered my dad's vinyl albums when I was maybe 10 or so. And so the way I visualize this tale, coupled with how he was a primal influence, make this a fascinating and delightfully bizarre listen.
The story keeps getting more - and more - and more - wonderfully twisted. And I think Hank would approve.
(And then you throw in another major influence, Garcia? Brilliant!)
I had to go to this one next, I wonder if this is pre-zombification Hank? Let's see. *holds onto his hat and presses play*
Nice swipe at those uppity necromancers leaching on the poor ol dead hankman.
I guess he was well on the way to zombification before the whole devil transformation thing. I wonder if there's an in between episode to explain or at least smooth over the logic there... or maybe that was hidden somewhere deep in the mushroom omlet in the eno boyfriend episode. Incredible... hahaha... Gerry Garcia.
@spazsquatch I like the idea of spoken word concept album, any dead performer.
Hank Williams will never be the same for me.
Not only was I not there, but I've never heard this story before. What a gripping tale!
What a story, man. I was completely enthralled. The background noise cycling through the headphones is so wonderfully unsettling. You've almost got me convinced they should use necromancers instead of holograms to bring back dead performers. Almost.
I’m late to the party but woah baby is this some lovely nightmare fuel. I got giddy and excited like it was a campy horror film.
All the little descriptive details like the bottle whiskey, you wrote this so well I willfully suspended disbelief and forgot what I was doing. Terrific and terrible! I love it!
wow whatta wild imagination ...
So cool ...those frogs kick butt in here...
thanks for posting the link for me...
enjoy the rest of FAWM
I somehow knew that roadies have stories to tell from, well their life on the road. Didn't expect this
3rd level demons are the worst. 2nd level demons are fun, 4th level demons are smart, but the 3rd level, pff, an unruly bunch, although very musically gifted.
There’s probably gonna be a new rule in the Necromancer Roadie rule book about this one.
Funnily enough, Hank III was conceived at this show, which explains his heavy metal and hellbilly leanings. "Hiring necromancers for an entire tour is not cheap." Hahaha
Totally captivating, you had me spellbound. Being a Hank fan, I welcome all information that might arise about his afterlife. Or third level demons.
Creeeeeeepy. It's funny, but dude - this is really creepy!
I think this idea deserves a full album. The little noises in the background add an extra level of eeriness to the already-creepy story. Necromancers, pentagrams, "I'm just a roadie," clouds of blood ... fabulously inventive!
Nice engaging story, keeps you hooked in, sounds like a swamp of the undead hanging out with Hank, much enjoyed!
Hank Williams has remained a complete enigma to me all my life,
(not being American or having any interest in country music).
But now I know all about him. He was a small skinny dead guy who actually had an 8 foot tall demon hiding inside him. No wonder he was famous.
Love the Jerry Garcia punchline and that weird squeaky backing.
Oh, yes, seconded. Do not mess with demons, stay away from them.
But it's cool and safe to hear you tell and speak about them. So funny, the tongue in cheek way you tell this as if it were true (or was it?, hahaha). So well told. Full of tension and creepy too. Yes, this is definitely a genre in which you excel.
What a strange trip and spectacle that must have been. Very cool eerie noise effects.
hahaha, this is great. "I'm just a roadie, so I kept my mouth shut." i thought this might be one of the "Hank Williams in Hell" challenge songs before clicking on it. I guess maybe it is, in its own way...
This sounds like a session from the World Of Darkness RPG. I love it. Necromancers, Demons, Demonologists & Hank Williams. And then Jerry Garcia! LOL This is brilliant, @fuzzy. And I have to agree with @dzdandcunfsd - that backing track is just wonderful.
See You In The Shadows…
That squeaky scratchy beepy panny backing is great!! I once saw Willie Nelson pass out still sitting on his stool after a few chords, he wasn't dead, but some non-knockoff necromancers on hand might of been a good idea. You get what you pay for 😆
Good luck on the Garcia revival tour!!!
If "Concept Album from a Fuzzy Spoken Word" doesn't became a new FAWM challenge tradition, I'll be disappointed.
